Admission Requirements

All materials must be submitted by the application deadline.

1. Admissions Application

The online application allows you to save your work as you complete it and ensures fast, secure delivery to our office.

International students who wish to apply for, maintain, or transfer their F-1 student visa status to Madison College are required to complete the International Admission Process.

2. Current Employment
Applicants to the online Optometric Technician program must be employed by an eye care clinic so the Optometric Technician Mentor Form is required to verify employment. This ensures the student has access to equipment required for course completion as well as an eye care professional to serve as a laboratory mentor.

3. Residency Requirement
Based on historical trends at Madison College a waitlist is not expected to form for this program. Therefore all applicants, regardless of residency status, are eligible for application review.
